Danish shopping mall among world’s best

Frederiksberg Centre wins award for design solution
A Danish shopping centre has won an award for the first time at the 2017 VIVA Best of the Best Awards, presented by the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) in Las Vegas.
Copenhagen’s Frederiksberg Centre – also the first Danish mall ever nominated – was one of six centres to win an honour award in the Design & Development category.
It was recognised for a 20,000sqm expansion that included an extra floor with 25 new shops plus another floor for parking. That boosted turnover by 24% in 2015 and by 32% in 2016.
The VIVA awards honour cutting-edge properties, innovative solutions and creative responses to market trends.
“Winning this fantastic award is a stamp of approval for us delivering a really good shopping centre to our customers,” said Eva Handest of Frederiksberg owner Danica Pension. “We’re pleased that a shopping centre from Denmark has been shown here and can help inspire the international retail industry.”
